2004 On Minimal Factorisations of Sporadic Groups

Abstract

Minimal factorisations of groups can be used in cryptography. It is not yet known if one exists for each finite group, although it has been shown that a minimal counterexample of a group without one must be simple. We prove existence of minimal factorisations for some sporadic groups.
